    As it turned out it became one. From memory both the final group games England v India and SA v Zim started at the same time, but the former went to the reserve day because of rain and, by then, Zimbabwe had beaten the already-qualifed Saffers so it was, yeah.

    In all fairness Zim did beat India before they downed SA, but given that SA had already qualified and what we know now the latter sticks in the throat a little.

    Rooting for South Africa here. Like I've said several times already, no-one from the other group should have an easy game in the quarters.

    I still don't understand this logic, if Bangladesh progress to the quarters that would mean they would have beaten England and SA. If a team has beat these two teams then surely they are capable of beating any other team, hence not an "easy game".
    Bangladesh have won 10 out of the last 13 ODI at home, not exactly a bad record.

    Bangers at home are a bit of a handful for anyone IMO. No easier than West Indies or New Zealand for any team tbh.

    I really want Bangladesh to win, but it's soured a bit by being a dead rubber for SA.

    Personally I would much prefer to see Australia play Bangladesh in the quarters than the West Indies or New Zealand. Obviously they're a decent team at home and capable of a big performance on their day but they have been thoroughly average for most of the WC and are much more likely to just capitulate into a huge loss.

    In terms of capability they are a significant challenge but they're by far the most unreliable of all the test nations.

    Amla is such a gun. The ease at which he plays. No power, just pure timing and still scoring more than run a ball. What a player.!!

    this is pretty dire from Bangladesh so far, no intensity, their body language seems to say they think it's over for them, need a wicket then another one, then another one

    It was funny to hear Athar Ali khan cribbing about the wicket on commentary. Apparently he wanted a slow and low wicket. This is a WC match, FFS.

    They have no plan B. South Africa knew it would be 40 overs of spin and have played it well so far. Target the quicks and just take it easy against the spinners, lay down 250+, game over.

    Shakib may have to bowl a lot of overs in a row here. They need a wicket pretty badly. Should have kept Shafiul on, goes for a few but can always buy a wicket.

    It is slow and low. Not a road by any means.

    This South African attack isn't good enough for it to be 250 game over tbh. 300? Yeah.

    If Steyn and Morkel were playing I'd agree with you entirely but South Africa's strength is spinners here and Bangladesh will back themselves a bit against them.
